The Camp Chef Sherpa Mountain Series Table is a product that has the potential to become a crucial cornerstone to any camp kitchen. Its size dictates that it will likely only be utilized for car camping or river running (or very short distance backpacking), but this is by no means a bad thing. The storage compartments (and accompanying cargo bags) provide ample storage space, and personally I love all of my miscellaneous camp kitchen essentials stored in one handy place (instead of scattered amongst who-knows-how-many bags!). Furthermore, the Camp Chef hardtop attachment makes for a perfect, portable table space. On my last trip into the desert, friends and I used the table to cut up fresh vegetables before adding them to a pasta dish (cooked on a Primus portable burner that also happens to fit perfectly on top of the Camp Chef table).
My only complaint so far has to do with the leg design. It is a push button lock design, which theoretically allows for the legs to be quickly pushed in (or removed). However, the "simple" design proved more difficult than expected once dirt and camp dust was introduced to the mechanism. Eventually I was able to get the legs to release, but with more pulling and tugging than I liked. I would also caution against making the "rookie" mistake I did, and using the Camp Chef as the dish washing area. Things were going along fine, until I popped off the grated hardtop attachment and realized that I had managed to get the entire cloth top of the table soaking wet. Luckily it has dried out, and there seems to be no lasting damage.
Based on its usability, functionality, and convenience I strongly recommend the Camp Chef Sherpa Mountain Series Table for anyone looking to beef up their camp kitchen setup. The design is simple and the components seem to be reasonably durable. It definitely opens up opportunities for camp cooking that I haven't previously considered!
